BBC Worldwide has pre-sold thriller “SS-GB,” which receives its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival on Tuesday, across Europe.

The series, set in a Nazi-occupied Britain post World War II, stars Sam Riley and Kate Bosworth. It has been licensed to Germany (RTL), Croatia (Pickbox), Sweden (SVT), Greece (Cosmote), Israel (HOT/Cellcom), Iceland (RUV), and Poland (Showmax).

“SS-GB,” a Sid Gentle Films production, will appear on BBC First channels in Africa, Australia, Benelux and the Middle East, as well as UKTV in New Zealand.

The series was adapted from Len Deighton’s 1978 novel by screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, whose credits include “Skyfall” and “Spectre.”

In the series Hitler’s Germany has defeated Britain and the population of 1940s Britain struggles to adjust to life under German occupation.

The BBC show features Buckingham Palace after being bombed by the Germans and swastika flags hanging outside.

Bosses have turned Len Deighton’s alternative history novel into a five-part serial.

It is set in 1941 and shows what UK life would have been like if the Germans had won World War Two and occupied us.

But scriptwriters have added some spice that wasn’t in the original book.

Lead Sam Riley – who plays Scotland Yard detective Doug Archer probing a black market murder – has a “Poldark moment”.

Viewers will see him with his top off, although he jokes: “I was determined not to have a six pack!”

Scriptwriter Neal Purvis said the drama will include bedroom scenes between Riley and his sexy co-star Kate Bosworth, who plays US journalist Barbara Barga.

He added: “We don’t shy away from the fact that they have a relationship.”

Kate laughed: “We called our director ‘The Horny Hun’.”

One of the most shocking scenes will be footage of The Queen’s residence Buck House after it has been bombed. Striking Draped outside the Palace are two large SS flags emblazoned with swastikas.

British actor Sam Riley is hoping his new TV show boosts his chances of playing James Bond.

The English star has teamed up with Bond screenwriting pair Robert Wade and Neal Purvis, who penned Die Another Day, Casino Royal and Spectre, among others, on new BBC drama SS-GB.

It’s the first time the writing duo has worked on the small screen, and Sam relished the chance to play Douglas Archer in the “film noir with Nazis”.

“As my dad put it, people might actually watch something I’m in now,” he smiled to Empire magazine. “Plus I’ve always wanted to play a detective and my ego saw I was in every scene. I’m hoping it will up my odds for playing Bond, too.”

The drama follows Sam’s cop Douglas, who has to decide whether to work with the enemy or join the resistance. It’s set in an alternative reality, where Germany has won World War II and the Nazis and SS control London and Scotland Yard.

“He’s ambiguous. He’s not a Nazi but he thinks there has to be law and order… His neighbours see him driven to work by the Gestapo and didn’t know if they can trust him,” Maleficent actor Sam explained of the role.

“We have Germans playing crucial roles, instead of English actors putting on dodgy accents.”

For writers Robert and Neal, the project offered them a break from Bond.

“We had more freedom than with the Bond films, which are so heavily deconstructed,” Neal said. “It’s great fun having a large canvas to tell a story with twists, turns and subtle plot (shifts).”
